I’m a curvy plus-size girl that loves to smile and laugh. I am anything but shy! I have a background in musical theater and improv comedy – So I’m quick on my toes. I love the classic pinup look and style, and would love to do a rockabilly themed shoot. I recently did some boudoir modeling and am falling in love with classic b&w shots, as well as the more risqué burlesque styles. I’ve been told I pull off that hot nerdy librarian/teacher/secretary look, and I’m happy to embrace that.
I am the Southern California D20 Girls Assistant Manager and any modeling within the gamer/geek/nerd/cosplay realm will have to be associated with the D20 Girls Project; however, that’s usually a perk for photographers as there work will be featured in our magazine, advertising, and social media. Just to give you an idea of what I have in my D20 Girls repertoire: Littleton Roller Vixen #42 “Leia Out”; "Tori" the Steampunk air-mechanic; "American Maid" from The Tick comics and cartoon; 50’s House Wife; and various other costumes. So, if you are interested in working with the D20 Girls in Southern CA – Then hit me up! We love to do group work with themed shoots and have a blast doing them.
Things that set me apart a little…
I have a black outline tattoo of a swallow on my left ankle that I absolutely adore (it’s an homage to my hometown of San Juan Capistrano, CA) and a lightly colored dogwood branch on my right shoulder. I’m somewhere between a DD and a DDD in cup size and a 40 around. My closet has everything from 16’s to 20’s in it. I have some animal allergies and can’t work with rabbits (or their fur - unless a trip to the ER is a planned part of the shoot), and I won’t wear angora or mohair sweaters. I’m going grey early (tragic, I know!), and so I dye my hair and play with the color a lot. I’m open to trying different hues within the red/brown/auburn spectrum, but my day job saddly just won’t go for the bold fuchsia or aquamarine looks. I wear glasses – I tried contacts but I hated them – but I can take them off for shoots. I have big beautiful eyes with natural eyebrows and am quite proud of them. ;0)
And just about me…
I am an avid lover of microbrews and old vine zinfandels. I kick butt at Scrabble and can quote Star Wars. I'm quite at home in the kitchen and can cook up dishes to make you swoon. I’ve lived in Denver, CO for the past 3 years and change, and I was born in New Jersey… So, I’m a mix of the states.
If you’d like to know more about me, the D20 Girls, or are interested in working together, then please feel free to drop me a line on here and I'll send you my email address. I look forward to hearing from you!
